Are you game? Dodgeball requires quick reflexes and nimble footwork. Anyone can play, it’s easy to learn and loads of fun.

New to the game?

The objective is to get all the opposing players out by throwing ‘live’ balls at them. After a live ball hits the ground, wall or other balls it is considered a ‘dead’ ball. If you are hit by the live ball you are out, but if you catch it the thrower is out. There are six balls in play and when in possession of one you have 10 seconds to throw it. You also can’t step over the sideline or centreline, or you are out.
